Very many thanks to all the other entrants, I appreciate your time and effort, better luck next time.

So how are you all doing? Good, I hope. Cooking up a storm in the kitchen? Having lots of lovely treats? I do hope so.
It’s great to get out in the fresh air once a day for our walk, and we are so lucky in this country to still have the freedom to do this. I don’t like to complain….. but….now that we are not supposed to drive anywhere to go for a walk we walk round and around our local housing estate and it is beginning to get a bit tedious… I have seen all the houses and gardens and flowers already. So I was so excited to see our friends Erica and Rob (and Tamara the dog) on the corner of the street a couple of days ago and do some long distance smiling and waving across the street at them. “Wow, real people!” said Erica. Yesterday we did a similar walk (nowhere else to go) and I looked for my friends again on the corner and I was just getting a bit lonely and then up popped Tina and Gary – as if by magic! Wow, more long distance smiling and waving across the road, that corner is the place to be. Erica you’re such a trend setter. I will now want to see friends EVERY time I pass that corner, so there. Who’s next?. Sue and Pete?
On Saturday we had to deliver shopping to my mother in law in Crowthorne so we took the opportunity to do our daily walk there for a change. After avoiding the high street that was far too crowded with people we walked up towards Broadmoor Hospital. There are some interesting trees up there including what looks like a redwood. The weather was gorgeous. Here are a few photos you might enjoy:
I’m still dreaming about living in this little wooden house in the woods, so cute.
That’s it for now. Well done Pat again. What’s for dinner? Ready made fish pie from Waitrose with petits pois for us tonight. I may cook something tomorrow night, watch this space!
